Interesting quote

It's quite interesting what some people find "disgusting," isn't it?

"It was odious, it was shocking, it was disgusting, and I think all Americans should be very alarmed about that," George Felos, attorney for Michael Schiavo, on congressional Republicans' attempts to delay the removal of the feeding tube by issuing subpoenas demanding that Terri Schiavo be brought before a congressional hearing. Yahoo! News - Quotes on Terri Schiavo Case

Of course, I'm a woman who received an e-mail from a middle school principal who found it "incredibly alarming" that I would dare e-mail the counsellor who told my daughter that she (the counsellor) "applauded the teaching methods" of a teacher who makes students cry. So to hear Schiavo's lawyer say that saving life is "odious" and "disgusting" really shouldn't shock me.

But it does. What does it say about our country? We are a wealthy, scientifically-advanced nation...that lets an innocent woman starve to death. No, strike that. That demands that an innocent woman starve to death. She is not given any rights of her own, except the "right" to die. Scott Peterson will drag us all through appeals for years, and the outcome of those appeals could very well be that his sentence is commuted. Even if it isn't, the governor of the State of California would have the right to commute that sentence. So can someone please explain to me why we are executing Terri Schiavo for no reason other than one man's greed? Why is it that the governor of the State of Florida does not have the right to commute Terri's sentence?

Michael Schiavo...Let's just say that there is a question as to how Terri got into the condition she's in. He is demanding an immediate cremation without an autopsy. The autopsy would likely show that, contrary to his claims, Terri did not suffer a heart attack at all, but that there were other--and far darker--reasons for her condition. He has moved on with his life, and has children with another woman, so one can understand his eagerness to remove any obstacles to a happy future. Of course, the fact that the biggest obstacle is the "odious...shocking...disgusting" life of his wife doesn't seem to bother those on the left. The same left that will be picketing outside San Quentin the day Scott Peterson goes to his final appointment. The same left that, if the Theresa in question were named Heinz Kerry and not Schindler Schiavo, would be moving heaven and earth to enact laws to save her life.

If given a choice of quotes to listen to, I'd personally rather hear this quote, from the same linked source as the one above:

"The president believes when there are serious questions or doubts in a case like this, that the presumption ought to be in favor of life." — White House spokesman Scott McClellan.

As one of our local talk show hosts said yesterday, "The horses of death have won one today." We as a nation should be ashamed of ourselves. The left that screams that we have slaughtered half a million Iraqi babies (are you listening, Ward Churchill?) is silent when it comes to one American woman who cannot defend herself. Well, no, I take that back. They're not silent, they're actually loud as they can be--demanding that she die, right now if not sooner. Keep it up, left, and you will continue to lose adherents. You will lose voters. You will lose those middle-of-the-roaders who might conceivably have voted Democrat come the next election.
